Ok, let me see do I have this correct. I've just picked up a couple of pointers from in here... No nuts No coleslaw No shellfish No tiramasu No soft cheese No alcohol (not even a glass of guiness) No lying on your back No sunbeds No highlights for your hair No faketan (according to Pink Shoe) No home-made mayonaise When you have the baby Get the bus. :o(

I'll probably get slated for this but, I drink coffee in the morning, I have my boiled eggs at the weekend (harder than usual) I eat nuts, sometimes wake up on my back, highlight my hair every six weeks, and have my glass of wine or guinness most weekends. AND I don't feel guilty. I think a lot of this is OTT but I'm probably just a very very bad M2B. :wv

Yip, its all nuts (no pun intended!!). I also still have my cup of tea, cooked satay the other day (although I didn't know about peanuts then, probably will avoid them from now on!), lie on my back in bed every night, and have eaten coleslaw loads. The way I look at it is that when my mum had her five daughters she was still smoking in her hospital bed (not that I'm condoning it!!), didn't breastfeed any of us and didn't know about any of this other crap, and there's not a thing wrong with any of us intellectually or physically. I think there are a load of male scientists out there in a lab somewhere cooking up news ideas to piss off pregnant women just for the craic!

I drank a glass of guinness every week when i was pregnant and it was very good at topping up my energy levels [quote:3689e52o]Ok, let me see do I have this correct.

I think you also forgot "no hoovering", "no carrying", "no lifting", "no emptying the dishwasher" and "no heavy housework" that some people claim to have convinced their DH is an indication for pregnant women!!! Wish I was so lucky! :o0

I have really come to the conclusion that if you are going to loose a pregnancy you're going to loose it no matter what you do and vice versa. All the stories you hear of women in the olden days who did everything to try to make themselves MC and it didn't work. Not saying you should go out and get plastered but an odd drink does no harm I think. Sure probably most of our Mothers smoked and drank when pregnant and we're all fine - well at least we think we are!! :o0 :o0 :o0 :o0 :o0
